Template Enhancements + New Content Management Updates

We have completed the latest upgrade to ATEB Suitability on 19th December 2023. This update comes at no additional cost and provides various template related enhancements as well as new additions to our content management libraries.

Full details of the enhancements can be found in the tables below, but some of the highlights are:

‘Onshore Bond’ added as new product type to the ‘Suitability Report (All Advice Scenarios)’ Template

Following feedback from customer firms, we have added a generic product type of ‘Onshore Bond’ to our suite of ‘Existing’ and ‘New’ investments. This product is available for recommendation or review alongside our existing ‘Bond’ types. This new product is accompanied with supporting sets of reasons, disadvantages and risk warnings.

‘Premium Loading’ section added for ‘Protection Advice’

For protection policy premiums that have had a ‘loading’ applied by the insurer, users are now prompted to capture the reasons behind the loading and the subsequent increase in cost.

New suite of standardised wording added for ‘Pension Switch’ recommendations

For funds that are being sold following a recommendation to ‘Pension Switch’, the corresponding wizard section generated now provides an additional suite of standardised text options prompting the user to highlight the dangers of time out of the market, during the period funds are not invested, and any additional charges that may be incurred from the new manager.

New risk warning added for ‘Fund Switch’ recommendations

When recommending a ‘Fund Switch’, the ‘Suitability Report (All Advice Scenarios)’ and ‘Suitability Review Letter/Report’ templates will automatically pre-populate the report output with a risk warning highlighting the dangers of time out of the market during the period funds are not invested.

Content Management Updates

We have added the following providers to the ‘Provider/Platform’ library of ‘Content Management’:

  • Cirencester Friendly
  • Holloway Friendly
  • Foresight

Following the rebrand of ‘Novia’ and ‘Wealthtime Select’ to a single group name, we have removed the ‘Novia’ ‘Provider/Platform’ description and replaced with an updated ‘Wealthtime’ description.

In addition, we have added the following ‘Blackrock’ funds to the ‘Investments’ library within ‘Content Management’:

  • MyMap 3
  • MyMap 3 Select ESG Fund
  • MyMap 4
  • MyMap 4 Select Income Fund
  • MyMap 5
  • MyMap 5 Select ESG Fund
  • MyMap 6
  • MyMap 7 Select ESG Fund
